Carpentersville Recycling

For the Village of Carpentersville, recycling is an initiative that has sparked the establishment of various systems and several programs that encourage residents as well as local businesses to do their part to save the environment. In fact, there is an existing Carpentersville Curbside Refuse, Recycling and Yardwaste Collection Program.

We at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal are proud to share that our services are in line with the community’s commitment to environmental sustainability. ?, We have a facility located in Gilberts at the end of Center Drive (near Oliver's Helicopters)
